Hi Chris, this is awesome! That's exactly how we would like to see
people react to the tool--publish more RDF!

That's a great idea! I'll try to think up some graphics... Picture of a
piggy-bank might work for the extension's icon but probably doesn't look
professional enough on institutional web sites... :-)

I wonder how people have been reacting to the "RDF Metadata" icon. I
think that's good for conveying to Semantic Web aware folks--it's
speaking "technology". We probably want an icon that speak
"functionality"--what the user can do beyond the web interface--browse
and save tidbits.
